Pitfalls and Plan Execution;
What's Next After Nuts & Bolts?

Thursday, January 28, 2021
6:00pm to 9:00pm Eastern Time, Room: Virtual - Zoom

Part 1: Pitfalls and Plan Execution

Your Idea is great. You have good feedback from potential customers. You are convinced that your Strategy is correct. So how come you are having trouble raising money or attracting a team or partners?

Over and over again entrepreneurs make the same mistakes. Experienced investors, partners, and employees are alert for the pitfalls. Session 6 will discuss these pitfalls, how to recognize them, what to do about them, and how to present a business plan case which alleviates or anticipates these concerns.

Yonald Chery will talk about what really happened to Virtual Ink: The Good, The Bad and the Ugly.
